Thoughts?

How about a discussion and evaluation after 1 year? ;)

Because by then the damage is done.

I agree 100% with what niuphan said and I'd just like to add a few more points:

1.) Not only will bandwidth become cheaper and more prevalent but it's very likely that advances in compression algorithms will severely decrease the size of lossless audio files.

2.) Increased popularity in 24-bit audio will make the disparity between lossless and lossy audio even greater.

It is interesting to me that already there are 3 approaches:
* uniform access-oriented formats
* some-and-some based on the wishes of tapers
* only taper-oriented formats

The access formats are more accessible both because they are smaller and streamable, but because they are more widely supported without plug-ins or downloads.

Therefore at one year the "some and some" compromise approach could stay where it is, or go full access, or go full trade-oriented based on how the technology and culture shifts.

An experimental some-and-some period seems to be as close to middle of the road we have.
